Over the Shoulder

Yesterday was a perfect day for photographing birds. It was heavily overcast and threatening to rain. In fact it was starting do drizzle when the last images were taken. I love overcast light for the saturated colors it brings out in the birds plumage. I set up my tripod and camera as close as I could possibly get to the hummingbirds favorite perch in my backyard. No photoblind I just stood not moving with my eye to the camera waiting. I was primarily focused on capturing that over the shoulder look that shows off the back of the hummingbirds. It was fun with the hummingbirds zipping around me back and forth to the nectar feeders. Sometimes the buzzed me pretty close. Thank you Lord that it is Friday. If you can please take some time out to pray for the people of Texas,Mexico,Florida and the Caribbean. With the hurricanes and earthquake they are going through a lot. God bless, chris All images were created with a Canon 7D MkII camera and a TAMRON | SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens on a Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro tripod with a Bogen heavy duty ballhead.#TeamCanon, #withmytamron


  1. Beautiful photos! I love the dark background. It makes the hummers look so bright, alert, and delicate!

    1. Thanks for stopping in and commenting, Caleb. The dark background is a grove of Redwoods far behind the perch and out of focus..
